As of my writing, there are six "hads" for this beer, but no written reviews. I can understand as this is a totally uninspiring offering. I'm not saying that it's bad - it's just NOT good.

It starts with a thin layer of head on top of a copper body. The head dissipates very quickly leaving nothing behind in terms of lace. There is mild hoppiness in the nose, but it is quite bland. The taste is flat and thin. The finish is semi-dry, but bland – much like the entire experience.

Draught @ Noho Brewfest: This one poured a hazy golden color. There was a small white head on it. The nose is OK. Resinous pine and faint grapefruit hops. The taste is good, but doesn’t stand out at all. Medium bodied, just a bit bitter. Pine and some grapefruit hop flavors. Pretty well balanced.
